I’ve been passing up Crooked Stave beers due to the price but I thought I’d give them one more shot. I grabbed this one because I read it was very hoppy, it is indeed very hoppy. The aroma is very candy-like, sweet like oranges and a bit of pineapple juice (maybe that was the brett?). I did make sure to let this warm up to room temperature but I still did not get any funk type aromas from this. I smelled it for awhile before I sipped it because the aroma was quite interesting. The flavor was a little bitter at first and then sweetness, then just hop dominated. Mouthfeel is nice. Overall this is a good beer and very interesting that it was fermented only with brett but I still can’t get past the price tag, its too expensive for me and I’d rather have bought a Saison Brett.

Bottle, 75cl. A slow gusher, producing an enormous, dense, off-white head. Unclear, golden body. Funky nose with lemon and a generic fruityness. Very bretty, almost soapy. Lots of hoppyness, and a quite bitter flavor. Very dry, and combined with the bitterness it almost makes you drink constantly to wet the palate. Funky, lemony and very bretty. Very long finish. An intense, extreme beer in many ways, smelling and tasting nice at first, getting better as I drink. 121109 saxo (18208) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2012

Bottle at Crooked Stave shared with Thirdeye11. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head. A huge nose of hay and fruity hops. The flavor is awesome: sharp and dusty Brett, hay, light fruity hops mix in with the dusty dry flavors, some sweet candy struggles through. Very big flavors with a perfect soft palate. Awesome. This is dead on delicious.
